Optional: Preparing the ObjectServer for integration with Network Manager

If you have already installed Netcool®/OMNIbus, the Netcool/OMNIbus Knowledge Library, and the Probe for SNMP, you can now install Network Manager, and do not need to follow the steps in this task. The Network Manager installer configures Netcool/OMNIbus for you during the installation process. If the ObjectServer setup changes after you have already installed and configured Network Manager and Netcool/OMNIbus, then you must reintegrate the ObjectServer with Network Manager as described in this topic.

To reintegrate the Network Manager product with the existing Tivoli® Netcool/OMNIbus V8.1 ObjectServer, run the ConfigOMNI script against the ObjectServer.


  1. Use the ConfigOMNI script to configure an ObjectServer to run with Network Manager.

    The script creates the Network Manager triggers and GUI account information. If the ObjectServer is on a remote server, then copy the $NCHOME/precision/install/scripts/ConfigOMNI script and the support script $NCHOME/precision/scripts/create_itnm_triggers.sql and put them into the same directory on the remote ObjectServer. If the ObjectServer is local to Network Manager, then you can use both scripts as is.

  2. On the ObjectServer host, change to the scripts directory and run the ConfigOMNI script.

    For example, the following configures the ObjectServer called NCOMS2 using the administrative password NC0M5password, or creates the ObjectServer called NCOMS2 if it does not exist, in the specified directory (OMNIHOME), and creates or modifies the itnmadmin and itnmuser users in the ObjectServer.

    ./ConfigOMNI -o NCOMS2 -p NC0M5password -h /opt/ibm/tivoli/netcool -u ITNMpassword
  3. You might also need to update the Network Manager core settings and the Web GUI data source settings. For more information, see the Network Manager documentation https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/SSSHRK_4.2.0/install/task/ins_installingandconfiguringomnibus.htmlexternal link.
